To make sure world never knows what you really think

YouTube announced Tuesday it is experimenting with removing the "dislike" count on posts.

The company said in a statement that in response "to creator feedback around well-being and targeted dislike campaigns, we're testing a few new designs that don't show the public dislike count."

"If you're part of this small experiment, you might spot one of these designs in the coming weeks."

The Gateway Pundit wondered if the move had something to do with President Biden's lack of popularity.

The blog previously reported YouTube, which is owned by Google, appeared to have altered the dislikes count on White House videos.

A Biden video had been "disliked" 10,000 times at 3:11 p.m., for example, had only 3,100 dislikes at 7:31 p.m.

Should YouTube remove its 'dislike' count?

PJ Media noted a recent display of a White House video showed 290 likes and 2,400 dislikes, describing it as a "rough ratio."

In video of Biden himself, it was 321 likes and more than 2,000 dislikes.

A video with Kamala Harris had 279 likes and more than 1,000 dislikes.

Such poor ratios, the report said, were consistent for the Biden videos.

The Gateway Pundit commented that the Democrats "and those leading social media believe these vehicles were built to control people by pushing garbage narratives. "

"They never counted on honest Americans using these vehicles to express real concerns, opinions, thoughts, and ideas."

LIBERTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATE

Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.

Liberals are people who stand on their heads and insist that the world is upside-down.
